Phase One Aerial Cameras Fully Integrated Aerial Photography Solutions
True Metric Camera A true metric camera depends on structural integrity. During the processing of images, the software that does the automatic aero-triangulation relies on the consistency and the rigidity of the camera and lens in order to provide metric data. Phase One cameras are designed to use removable lenses but employ mechanisms to secure lenses to the camera body and a system of locking the lens at infinity focus. This keeps the lens in place even though the camera might be exposed to inflight vibrations and sudden movements during takeoff or landing.

Phase One iXA-R/iXA Phase One aerial cameras are designed as the central hub in an open aerial data acquisition system, enabling users to choose “best-of- breed” components to complement the Phase One systems. The iXA-R and iXA cameras offer flexibility for users looking for a standalone camera or an array of multiple cameras.
Phase One iXA-R
The Phase One iXA-R aerial cameras are Phase One's flagship series of cameras and are built with features including, focal plane and central leaf shutters, optional Forward Motion Compensation, scalability to form multi-camera arrays, as well as easy integration with popular flight management systems and GPS/IMU receivers.
The cameras are built with one of three Rodenstock lenses — 40 mm, 50 mm and 70 mm. The interchangeable lenses are individually inspected and factory calibrated for infinity focus.
The three focal lengths cover most uses and are suitable for creating DTMs and DSMs for mapping as well as Orthophotos. The 50 mm lens, with its opening angle of 56.4º, is especially suited for capturing images alongside a LiDAR.
Phase One iXA
With a choice of 80 megapixel, 60 megapixel and 60 megapixel achromatic models, the iXA aerial camera is designed to easily incorporate into existing or new systems, making it the perfect solution for integrators or end users looking for a rugged, high-quality industrial-grade aerial camera system. The medium format solution offers exceptional image quality and features that rival large format cameras at a fraction of the price.
The Phase One iXA aerial cameras use removable Schneider- Kreuznach fast sync lenses, which are available in focal lengths from 28 mm to 240 mm.
The Phase One iXU aerial cameras are the world's smallest and lightest integrated digital medium format aerial cameras. They are available in 80 MP, 60 MP, 50 MP and 60 MP Achromatic versions. The iXU series, combined with Schneider-Kreuznach fast sync lenses with internal electronically controlled leaf shutters provides the image quality expected from a dedicated aerial photography camera.
Phase One iXU 180
The Phase One iXU 180 features an 80 MP CCD sensor for an impressive 10,328 pixels cross-track coverage, yet is so small that its body is barely wider than its lens barrel. Weighing in at less than 950 grams (1.45 kg with an 80 mm), the iXU 180 has an optional Forward Motion Compensation feature. The camera can be used as a standalone camera for photogrammetric work or as part of an array of multiple cameras, either to cover a larger swath or as part of an oblique camera system.
Important component of oblique systems
With a small form factor and medium format resolution, the Phase One iXU cameras offer users a solution for building arrays that can easily be mounted on a gyro stabilization mount and fit in the existing belly holes of many aircraft.
Phase One iXU 150
The Phase One iXU 150, which is milled from magnesium alloy, is built around a 50 MP CMOS sensor, offering quality images across its 100 - 6400 ISO range. The camera boasts 8,280 pixels in cross track coverage and weighs only 750 grams (1.25 kg with an 80 mm lens).
The CMOS technology makes widened operational hours a possibility during days with deteriorating light conditions.
UAV ready
Its light weight and small footprint make the iXU 150 perfectly suited for UAV integration. Using iX Link's RS-232 connectivity, internal CF storage and full HDMI output, the iXU 150 can be used for UAV missions, including for inspection.

Forward Motion Compensation The Phase One FMC solution employs Time Delayed Integration (TDI) to compensate for image blurring occurring as a result of slower shutter speeds, faster flight speeds or higher GSDs. This enables more flexibility when determining flight schedules and enhanced image quality under low light conditions.
The FMC option enables increased profitability through the ability to fly more days and under less optimal light conditions, compensating for issues with blurring and smearing.
The Phase One FMC feature is sold either as an option on a new system or as an upgrade to an existing camera. It is available on our 80 MP and 60 MP iXA-R, iXA and iXU cameras.
Highest resolution oblique systems
With a small form factor and medium format resolution, Phase One cameras offer users a solution for building arrays that can easily be mounted on a gyro stabilization mount and fit in the existing belly holes of many aircraft.
The increasingly popular high-resolution 3D city models require medium format cameras that can be integrated into small oblique systems that fit inside a gyro mount. Owners of ultralight planes or gyro copters are now able to build oblique systems and insert them into smaller belly holes with less interaction with the hull of the aircraft, which means an easier path to obtaining a supplemental type certificate (STC).
Nadir imaging
Whether you are operating a single camera or multiple cameras covering a large swath, Phase One aerial cameras are built to be flexible and the central hub in any aerial data acquisition system.
Achromatic cameras
To complement the RGB cameras, Phase One offers achromatic versions of the iXA-R, iXA and iXU cameras. The 60 MP sensor is optimized for aerial photogrammetric applications and offers high sensitivity to visible light, including UV and IR ranges. Achromatic cameras can be used in single camera configurations or in dual-camera configurations in conjunction with an RGB camera. The achromatic camera captures NIR images which can be combined with RGB images to create co-registered four-band (RGBN) imagery.
Applications Phase One camera offer reliability and versatility for users looking for a full-featured medium format aerial camera. Easily integrated into existing or new setups, the camera offers maximum connectivity with systems for:
o Mapping
o Critical infrastructure inspection
o Power line monitoring
o Disaster site monitoring and mapping
o Iceberg monitoring
o Hydrometric mapping
o Asset management
o 3D modeling
o Crowd monitoring

Software Solutions Phase One offers a choice of software solutions to enable the integration of the camera with your existing workflow.
iX Capture
iX Capture is an aerial capture, control and RAW conversion application that was created exclusively for shooting with Phase One aerial camera systems. iX Capture was designed with an intuitive interface that displays key information such as exposure settings, histogram, GPS data and frame count. The image display can be paused at any time to enable operators to inspect images by zooming to 100 percent or to set white balance. iX Capture enables operators to track each capture and utilize real-time feedback to be confident that each image has been captured correctly.
Used together with Phase One aerial cameras, this professional capture and RAW converter software enables full control over one or multiple cameras, so that an operator can easily monitor and control every aspect of aerial data acquisition.
iX SDK
The iX SDK provides the tools for you to build your own custom application. Using the SDK, you can control the camera as with iX Capture. With the iX SDK you have a high degree of control of which parameters to apply while capturing or processing images.
Image processing Phase One also offers a choice of software solutions for image processing:
Capture One software
Capture One is the raw converter for ultimate image quality. It contains all the essential tools, in a single package, to enable you to organize, edit, process and convert images to industry standard formats, such as TIF and JPG.
Capture One Processing Engine
Capture One Processing Engine (COPE) provides components for you to automate image processing with your settings. Batch process files with specific parameters including lens correction and save images in industry standard formats. Using COPE, post-processing can happen in parallel to the capture process, saving valuable time on the ground.
iX Controller Phase One offers a choice of hardware and software solutions to enable the integration of the camera with your existing workflow.
Ultimate speed and control
Phase One introduced the iX Controller as the perfect companion for the iX Capture application or SDK-based application.
Designed to provide the ultimate in speed, and with the ability to control multiple Phase One aerial cameras, the iX Controller is a rugged, fanless PC, based on the 4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor.
With a small footprint and easily integrated into any aircraft, the Phase One iX Controller acts as a central hub of your aerial camera system controlling multiple cameras
Multiple display configuration
The iX Controller can be configured to connect to a display via wireless, network or HDMI cable. Use a touch display to control the cameras with a touch of a button
Solid state drives
The iX Controller employs two removable SSD drives, which have especially high write speeds to ensure you capture and record every image quickly and reliably. When the mission is over, the compact and light SSD drives are easily removed from the iX Controller and sent for processing.
Multiple Camera Configuration Phase One aerial cameras are truly scalable systems, allowing you to adapt to different needs and scale the system to match diverse requirements. Whether the need is a single camera for small area mapping, or a two-, four-, five- or more camera configuration for large area mapping, Phase One cameras are the perfect choice to build your solution.
Use a Phase One camera by itself or in a multiple camera configuration to capture synchronized images and eliminate post production sync issues. The cameras are daisy- chained together to reduce unnecessary cabling and simplify connectivity with the FMS, GPS and iX Controller.
